    Hi there,

    I'm using W3TC plugin on my Wordpress, and also using Cloudflare (the free version of it).

    Both offer a number of similar features, like caching and minification.

    Should I turn on these features on both W3TC and Cloudflare, or is enabling them on 1 of these services enough?
    Would it complicate things or create conflicts if I turn them on both platforms?

    Thanks

    That's a good question. I found an oddly specific article on Cloudflare's support page about this situation and here is what it said:

    Cloudflare is better at minification and asynchronously loading all the js.I would advise you to stay with cloudflare :)
